The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukuemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Through the Student Series campaign, children, teachers, parents and school administrators are able to directly support the mission of LLS by participating in one of our philanthropy programs. Watch the short video below to learn more about our programs and the patient heroes they support.
What The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Does
LLS invested $40.3 million in research in fiscal year 2017 to advance life-saving research.
LLS is the leading source of free, highly specialized blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals. We touch patients in their communities through our chapters across the U.S. and Canada. We advocate for blood cancer survivors and their families, helping patients navigate their cancer treatments and ensuring they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care.
Policy and Advocacy
LLS recognizes that finding cures is not enough; we need to ensure that patients have access to the treatments, services and providers they need to live longer, better, healthier lives. LLS is dedicated to removing barriers to care. By providing our network of advocates a powerful voice, the Policy and Advocacy Team drives policies that accelerate the development and approval of innovative treatments and ensure that patients have sustainable access to quality, affordable coordinated care. Our team is committed to ensuring that patients have access to adequate network of providers and services and are protected from high out-of-pocket costs that limit access to life-saving treatments
